What makes Natural Grocers a great place to work?
Just like its dedication to its customers and community, Natural Grocers has a 62-year history of caring for employees.
As part of the company's five founding principles, Natural Grocers supports all employees by offering:
- Competitive pay, including the exclusive Natural Grocers Vitamin Bucks program, which provides employees an extra $1-per-hour worked of in-store spending money.
- Birthday bonuses equal to one-day's pay, which originated from founder Margaret Isely's tradition of celebrating the birthdays of all employees by preparing lunch for them. Once the company became larger, her children, the current executives of the company, implemented the policy of providing each employee with a full day's pay on their birthday to say, "thank you for working with us."
- Company-wide store discounts and credits of up to 30 percent on all Natural Grocers products, which provides employees substantial savings on high quality groceries and supplements and helps them retain more of the dollars they earn.
- Natural Grocers also offers comprehensive benefits packages to the over 80 percent of its employees who are full- time, including medical, dental and vision insurance; flexible spending and health savings accounts; short- and long-term disability and life insurance; a 401K savings plan; generous paid time off; and extensive free nutrition education programs.
Natural Grocers will provide the community with fresh produce that is 100 percent USDA Certified Organic, naturally raised meats, pasture-based dairy products, and free-range eggs as well as other healthy, affordable, organic and natural products. The store will feature a mix of national brands and a selection of locally produced products in a small, neighborhood market environment. The store will also feature a Nutritional Health Coach and offer free nutrition education classes to the public.
